Man Accused Of Exposing Self At Occupy Austin

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A man has been accused of exposing himself to a 16-year-old girl at the Occupy Austin encampment.

Twenty-year-old Jarod Smith, arrested on Sunday, is charged with indecency with a child. He was being held in the Travis County correctional complex on Tuesday on $15,000 bond. The jail did not have attorney information for him.

According to an arrest affidavit, the teen told police she saw the suspect masturbating at about 6 a.m. Sunday while looking at her in the amphitheater at City Hall Plaza, home to the Occupy Austin encampment.

The Austin American-Statesman reports that the affidavit said that the girl told a security guard, who informed Austin police.
